The Saker: "A few recent political developments which should not go unnoticed"

Russian military vehicles in Italy

Written by The Saker; Originally appeared at The Unz Review

The COVID19/SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is, by any measure, an immense planetary crisis which will probably change the world we live in forever.  Still, there are other issues which are maybe not quite as dramatic and important, but which deserve not to be forgotten.  Here are some of those

The grand betrayal of Tulsi Gabbard:

it was pretty clear to most observers that Tulsi Gabbard, being the only real “peace candidate” would never be allowed to get the nomination, nevermind make it into the White House.  It was also clear that Tulsi, for all her very real qualities, simply did not have what it takes to take on “The Swamp”.  Still, in spite of this all, her candidacy and campaign were like a huge pitcher of cool water in the middle of an immense and dry desert.  Her uniqueness amongst all the candidate is what make her betrayal even more painful for those who respected or even supported her.  Once it became clear that she would never get the nomination, not only did she not run as an independent (something which Hillary seems to fear a lot), she endorse Uncle Joe, the clearly senile, totally corrupt and generally repugnant frontman for the Clinton gang.  This endorsement of Biden is something which she did not have to do, but she did it.

When the DNC stole the nomination from Sanders, he did not lead a protest or run as an independent, he endorsed Hillary.  I always considered him a fraud for this (and many other) reason.  Now Tulsi Gabbard is doing the same thing, which probably is a good indicator that the Democratic Party is evil and corrupt to the core, which is hardly big news, but which is dramatically confirmed by Gabbard profoundly immoral decision.  Why do I say that?  because Biden is the ultimate “anti-Gabbard”, she should have endorsed either Bernie, or even Trump, but instead she endorse a morally corrupt warmonger, a total pawn for the MIC.

At the end of the day, she mostly betrayed herself, and that is the saddest aspect of this debacle.

The AngloZionist Empire – as clueless as ever

I have forced myself to listen to the daily COVID19 briefings from the White House and I have to say that Trump’s constant flag-waving and self-worshiping is almost physically painful to watch.  The worst parts of these briefings are when Trump, or Pompeo, speak about the US “leadership” as if the entire planet was desperately expecting the USA to help.  It does not.  In fact, most of the planet is disgusted by US action, be it the denial of vitally needed meds to countries like Iran or Venezuela, to the attempts are buying off German vaccines, to the mantric repetition about how great the US private sector is and how Amazon and Walmart will help us weather this crisis.

The truth is that this worldwide pandemic will allow us all to compare how different political systems, countries and cultures have reacted to the threat.  In a year or so, we shall all know whether free-market capitalism and libertarianism compare with social-democracies, socialist and even communist countries fared when their population needed protection and assistance.

True, other countries have responded with truly amazing incompetence (including several EU countries), so the inability to protect its citizens is not a purely US problem, it really affects all the countries currently subjugated by the Empire.

Finally, it appears that the China-bashing strategic PSYOP has largely failed.  Most fake-news about China were quickly and rapidly debunked, and even the legacy corporate ziomedia could not completely obfuscate the fact that China is, so far, the only country on our planet which defeated COVID19.

Will there be an “ideological lessons learned” once the crisis subsides?  I sure hope so!

For the time being, the Empire does what it always does, it plans to deny even more civil rights to its own people which has true patriots like Ron Paul extremely worried.  What else is new?

Capitalism with a human face?

Nope, that sure ain’t gonna happen this time around.

Serbia betrayed by Europe (again!) while Russia provides vital aid to Serbia and Italy

Serbia has been betrayed by the Europeans, again.  This time around, the Europeans did not bomb Serbian civilians, they simply refused to sell the meds needed to respond to the crisis.  President Aleksandar Vucic has now officially declared that the EU solidarity “exists only on paper“.  He then openly appealed for China to help, and help China did – the Chinese send aircraft filled with much needed medical equipment and doctors.  Then Russia followed suit and sent 10 heavy transporters fill with gear and specialists.

Even more amazing (and appalling) is the fact that the Empire does not even help its own subjects – in Italy, it was Russia again which organized a major air bridge (over 15 heavy transporters!) and now we see Russian Army units deployed in northern Italy to help the struggling Italians.  Check out these short videos reports by the Russian military.  You don’t need to understand Russian to see the size of the air-bridge the Russian Aerospace Forces have established or to how grateful the Italian officials are!

Also, check the excellent article by Andrei Martyanov about this “Russian invasion of Italy“.

I have to say that the Serbs have been fantastically naive to trust the very same people who bombed them, in total illegality, for 78 days, murdering scores of innocent civilians (including those murdered in the TV tour).  For example, the Serbs could have considered how the EU has been lying to Turkey, for decades.  But no, the Serbian elites now seem to think that they will be able to fill their pockets with lucrative contracts with the EU.

Hopefully, what these events have demonstrated shall not be forgotten when the next elections take place in Serbia.

That also goes for Italy.

And, finally,

The situation in northern Syria and Iraq

The situation in northern Syria and Iraq had developed pretty much as expected.  So far, the Turks have been unable to re-take full control of the M4 highway.  As a result of that failure, the joint Russian-Turkish patrols have not been able to move along the full length of the highway as spelled out in the agreement between Russia and Turkey.  Clearly, Turkey lacks either the will, or the capability, or both, to remove the Takfiri forces from the M4 highway.  So far, the Russians and Syrians have very kindly agreed to wait a little longer, but the recent visit of Russian Defense Minister Shoigu to Damascus clearly shows that big decisions are being worked on:

As for Iraq, the various Shia militias are doing exactly what everybody had predicted, they are executing limited but very disruptive strikes against US forces in Iraq. Here is a good infographic by the Institute for the Study of War which sums it up very nicely:

What we have hear is a small trickle of attacks which do not yield any major victory to the Iraqi forces, but which over time will tremendously demoralize US forces.  Finally, such “death by a thousand cuts” strategy also will severely limit the operational capabilities of the US forces in Iraq: when you are mostly busy protecting yourself, you have less time to murder locals.

Still, sooner or later the Shias will have to step up their attacks because forcing the occupation forces to hunker down and actually kick them out of your country are two very different propositions.  These small strikes are very useful, not only because they demoralize the enemy, but because by forcing him to stay inside fortified “secure” areas only makes them better targets for a bigger missile strike.

This is a very sound strategy against which the US forces have no good option, other than throwing in the towel and leaving, which they will have to do anyway (exact that they call it “declare victory and leave”, but its the exact same thing).

    I just want to say, of course she endorsed Biden. He has no chance against Trump and ultimately it is about keeping the peace with her. She has a great chance in 4 years to really become president. After this “Virus” clears up and the Global predictor moves the center of governance to China. While weakening the U.S. Elite to the point where Trump can go after them will make her path more clear. She is just playing the game is all. Idealism can get you no where sometimes. So you have to be tactical as well.

    • Ilya

      She has a chance if she is honest, but she was political, and the people don’t want another calculating politician. Even Trump’s randomness is better than political calculation atm!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      What is hardly amazing is the Euro-fags love for each other :) not a single EU nation came to each others assistance after being hit the Americunt bio-warfare virus. Only Russia, China and Cuba representing the best of the Socialist nations rushed in aid, medical assistance and personnel. Americunt arsehole selfish fucks once again proved that they don’t give a shit about any other human being, same for the Jew parasitic bastards who have mooched off European money for 70 years and did not even offer a word of sympathy as thousands of Italian and Spaniards are dying, thanks to their DNA similarity with Persians who were the intended Pentagon target along with China, but now are caught as collateral damage.

      Don’t be so sure about Biden’s unelectability. At the moment it appears to be the case, the Democrats should already know he is as dead as a Dodo. HOWEVER. What if……. Michelle Obama was parachuted on to the ticket as VP. That would send a surge of plasma through Dead Joe and anything could happen. If that didnt work MOb would be in pole position next time. If there is a next time

      • Ronald

        Biden is a gift to Trump, even more so if Michelle Obama is on the VP ticket.
        Andrew Cuomo, Governor of NY, may stand a chance against Trump.
        Tulsi Gabbard 2024.

        • Redadmiral

          Cuomo is proving himself to be a disaster in NY with Covid19 spreading like wildfire there. Tulsi sounds great, like Obama did and Trump too. Unfortunately, the system is rigged. It does not matter who gets elected they are just the window dressing. Yanki deep state rules the roost and should the window dressing want to rearrange things it gets dumped into a skip. Rem. JFK

          • Ronald

            RIP, JFK
            Loaded dice is right.

      • goingbrokes

        Agree, Sleepy Joe is a chance to parachute Michael Obama or Killary Hlinton to White House. Not that Dem morons are going to win this time, they are about to become a shipwreck.

    • goingbrokes

      No, it’s betrayal of her supporters. Just like Bernie 2016, and Bernie again now. Once you start next time will be easier.
      But what you are doing is endorsing betrayal as a legitimate part of political life. It’s one thing to have betrayals, but it’s much worse to start endorsing them.
      Tulsi will never be president, never. She didn’t have the goods now, she won’t have them in the future.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Well, the Americunt and Jew evil bio-warfare virus has backfired on them. Could not have happened to nicer people :) KARMA IS A BITCH NAMED POMPEO!

    • John Wallace

      Not sure if you watch kitco . com which is the gold / silver site. Anyway there is an interesting video with the author of Rich Man Poor Man . Maybe the rich win again..
      Robert Kiyosaki says self-isolation is making people realize they got “screwed” by system
      not putting the link as those posts seem to get marked as spammm ?? It is the people getting screwed . as usual.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Thanks, just reaffirms what we have been posting here for years. The Bilderberg Jews are only interested in profit, fuck the average working git, and now the whole Americunt ponzi system built on exploitation and police state is falling apart. The evil bastards spend $15 TRILLION on lost wars and can’t even produce cloth and paper face masks for the dumb morons on the streets.

        • John Wallace

          No worries. Trouble is before the US goes down they will lash out and take whoever they can with them. They will not go down without a fight . The other scenario is the rich have it all and everyone else is nothing more than a total slave .

      • Redadmiral

        Checked out Kitco, which I too would recommend to people, I liked Kiyosaki’s “if you’re going to a gunfight you would want to take more than a Glock” Yeah he is on the money regarding this Covid19 False Flag. I was down in our little town yesterday, the wimmin were shoppers were overwhelmingly gloved and masked even in their cars. So whatever we are being gromed for it will be inforced by mothers, wives or girlfriends, a friends wife attired with all preventative measures jumped back from me when I got within a meter of her. I asked how her husband was as I hadn’t seen him in over a week. He is staying at home and only limited phone use. Me being me said “for fucksake will ya get a grip of yourself” She spun around and almost ran off. I text my pal as he was not answering, he phoned me back, “she has the place under marshall law, she has lost the plot completely, but then too so have the daughters and her sisters. Life in the Irish Midlands, is seriously weird right now……

        • John Wallace

          Yeah liked that one too. Bit like was it in Canada or US , can’t remember with people having snowball fights and fun and the cop pulls his gun and someone screams out “who brings a gun to a snowball fight” priceless.
          We aren’t as bad as that here . yet? , but the wife being in healthcare is being a little over the top similar to that.. Let’s just say this virus is real and a mistake but we can rest assured that next time those in control will use this experience for their advantage next time. Next time there will be no coming back. Everyone will be living Bridge over the River Kwai. Take care.

      are you free of rabies?

  • SalusPopuli

    As a politician in a party system. You work with your party. Tulsi competed for the nomination as an outsider. She got on a few debates. And maybe should have been invited to one or two more. When she did not get the nomination she stepped down and gave token support to the front runner. Because that is what you do. Because that is what she would have expected of Biden if she had won the nomination. There is no betrayal here.

    What is the alternative? Democrat politicians never supporting one another, always bitterly trying to sabotage for the front runner after losing the bid? That would be idiotic. And would make the Democrats helpless against the Republicans if the Republicans refrained from such foolish behavior. Like it or dislike it, this is just politics in party democracies.

    A year ago I predicted that Tulsi Gabbard (whom I personally like) was there to hoover up the more sophisticated liberal vote and hand them to DNC when the time was right. So no surprise for me! makes me laugh to think about how many people swore she was the real thing. Come on – a good looking military girl!!! That has to be a psyop 99% of the time.

    • Ronald

      You may be right, but at least we would have a good looking President telling us “weee all goinn a die”.
